Love Lusts Too – A poem

Lust and love…

I sometimes don’t even know the difference

When I can’t get you off my mind

Is it love I am feeling or lust

When all I want is to make love to you and hold you close to me

Is it still love I am feeling or lust

Or is it love only when you’re married and lust when you’re not?

The feelings sometimes feel same

Like love sure coexists with lust

Maybe that’s only true in marriage

But I see lust in true love many times

So much lust between partners for the object of their love

Not people they have a fling with, but people they truly love and will die for

Then I become confused and I conclude

Maybe love lusts too. Maybe it does!

Sex and Marriage

“The best kind of sex in marriage is when a husband is cherishing his wife and the wife is cherishing her husband. Sex affirms each other’s beauty, worth and desirability. Neurologically, the more you have sex with each other, the more you desire each other and the less attractive other women become. This is basic brain chemistry”

Intimacy

“At the heart of humankind’s existence is the desire to be intimate and to be loved by another. Marriage is designed to meet that need for intimacy and love. That is why the ancient biblical writings spoke of the husband and wife becoming “one flesh.” That did not mean that individuals would lose their identity; it meant that they would enter into each other’s lives in a deep and intimate way”.

~~Dr. Gary Chapman
